Hospice of the Fisher Home Golf Tournament: What Can You Expect?

For seven years, the Hospice of the Fisher Home Annual Golf Tournament has been a staple in the community.  It all started in 2017 at Amherst Golf Club! Our fundraising team decided that getting the community involved in raising money via a fun-filled day would not only help those during their end-of-life journey, but also create lasting memories for those involved.

Since August 12, 2017, it has been one of the best days of the year for the Fisher Home, golfers, and volunteers! 


An Inside Look


While many have graced the golf course in support of the Fisher Home, you may be asking yourself “what can I expect at the annual golf tournament?” Well, here’s a firsthand account of last years tournament:


When you get to Amherst Golf Club, it’s easy to feel welcome – but especially on a day like this one. The Annual Fisher Home Golf Tournament brings together community members who care about a cause for an amazing day and it’s obvious that there’s a little competition in the air!

After parking, volunteers and members of the Fisher Home staff greet you at the front, helping you check in! Here, you can sign up for the numerous raffles that will take place after your round of golf. Just past the welcoming booth, another friendly face offered goodie bags for every player!


With the sun shining down, everyone is in good spirits, ready to get their game going. Each foursome brings their own energy to the course, and a photographer is sure to snap a picture of every group! 

Once loaded into their golf carts, players begin at the first hole. But, these are not the normal Amherst Golf club holes that everyone is used to… each one has a sponsored poster from one of the amazing local businesses that has sponsored the Fisher Home. Golf Tournament. Additionally, there are special surprises throughout the course, including mini-games.


When the 9 holes are over, the fun does not end. Raffle winners are picked, a putting contest is held, and lunch is served! Delicious sandwiches are enjoyed alongside fun conversation. And, most importantly, everyone knows they are there supporting a great cause.
